Remove Pollen From Security Cameras: Having the most up-to-date security system won’t help if all of your cameras’ lenses are coated in pollen. Imagine trying to make out a burglar’s face through a green blur. Make sure you clean your cameras uses a blower or a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging the lens. Use a little bit of lens cleaning solution and wipe it off with a cleaning cloth or lens tissue.
Trim Lawn/Bushes: Keeping your lawn grass short and properly maintaining the shrubbery on your property is a great way to deter burglars. Having an overgrown lawn or out-of-control bushes can make it look like you’ve been away from your home for a while or that your home may lack a security system.
